Bootling Linux on A13 for less than 1 second


Miroslav Bendik already made few interesting posts how to use Qt on A13 which we blogged about.

Now he made script which boots linux in less 1 second and you can build the same image using his GitHub scripts

In his post at he explains what he did

Here is video to see A13 booting Linux and GUI. Note that there is 2 seconds delay before the GUI is started so you can see and read the messages:

    I didn’t time booting on A20, but I guess that’s next?

    Hi I finally get on this post 😉
    I do all the steps for creating the sd image, but when I go to copy the img file to my sd card, the system will not boot. Am I missing some steps?
    1. install all necessary for compiling
    2. git clone: “git clone
    3. in the a13-olinuxino-autobuild dir I do the “make”
    4. in the buildroot-a13-olinuxino i make the image
    5. i copy the image to my sd card with dd if=a13-olinuxino.sdimg of=/dev/sdb
    6. the partitions are created but the system will not boot.

    Any suggestions?
